In 1986 I began attending hospital births as an advocate for natural birth. Shortly thereafter I was invited to attend a few home births to see if it was where I really wanted to be using my skills. I apprenticed with a midwife in this area, and we worked together for 18 years.
Today I am a Certified Professional Midwife, and a Wisconsin Licensed Midwife, and this past October marks the 20th year that I have been attending out of hospital births. I have been married for 25+ years and have 4 children, 3 born at home. I live in South Central/South Eastern Wisconsin and will travel within reason.
I believe in the creator who designed women to conceive, carry and deliver babies, and I believe in women and the strength they have within to labor and deliver their babies. I am here to serve these women and their families. Help educate them as needed, guide them in the pregnancy, and guard the natural process of labor and delivery.
